Christmas day was really special for us. Seeing as it fell on a Sunday we went to church Sunday morning. Joshua's older sister Callie sang a solo at church. It was a very touching moment for us and we were so proud of our little girl. So many family members came to watch her. It was such a treat for her to stand and spot family members in the crowd who she didn't even know were coming. We had known most people planned on coming, but figured they'd be tied up with their own Christmas morning traditions....however, everyone made it out! It made Christmas day even better than it already was!
As for Joshua's heart, people ask me frequently how he's doing. He's doing okay. He's progressing slowly, but he is progressing. I guess that's all we can ask for at this point. I've realized lately that his mood is closely linked with his physical well being. He was quite moody in the weeks that led up to his hospitalization & he's beginning to be much more like his old self again. Now when I wonder how he's feeling I start by noting his temperament that day & its usually a good indicator of how he's doing on the inside.
Do any of you heart moms notice the same?
Anyway, things aren't bad & we are excited to see what the new year has in store!
Happy New Year to you & your family!
(by the way, Joshua owns more than one shirt...he just prefers to only wear one of the shirts he owns!)
